    seems like somewhere underneath. i have had new tires installed and this hasn't resolved the problem. my boss thinks it might be transmission since i had that flushed and seems the noise came soon after that.

Have the trans. checked out to be sure if it was in the steering the noise would come from the front end and you would likely be feeling something in the steering wheel

Power steering squeal

You should not turn power steering to extreme locks and hold them there constantly. The squealing is the noise the power steering unit is screaming," You are killing me".

1995 gmc suburban leaking power steering fluid at end of I think is steering column that hooks to something else but there is rubber seal like that is breaking apart that connects the 2 parts together? I...

Sounds like the pitman arm. See #5 on diagram below. It has a ball joint with grease that is held in with a boot. It the boot is cracked open, you should replace the arm. You will need an alignment after replacing the arm. The arm does not contain any steering fluid, so if that is leaking, you have another seal broken somewhere...

Hi there! I'm having a major problem with the power steering fluid pouring out of my 1998 Chevy 4x4 suburban...I was wondering if the entire unit may need replacing or it could be just as simple as a hose?...

Could be either, to check fill will power steering fluid, start engine, have some one turn steering wheel, and see if it's coming out of a hose or from the back of the power steering pulley, if it's a hose replace power steering hose, if it's from the back of the pulley, replace power steering pump, hope this was very helpful.

Power steering

the power steering reservoir on this car is on the passenger side, back of the motor, far down. you will see a small cap with a picture of a white steering wheel. keep looking, it's difficult to see but it is there!
as for the noise, my first suspicions would either be upper strut bearings, or possible a lower control arm bushing pulling out of place. failing those, could be a seizing tie rod end or ball joint. very unlikely, but not to be ruled out, is the intermediate steering shaft (what connects your steering wheel to the steering rack). a mechanic with a good knowledge in suspension diagnosis should be able to pick off your problem. if you wish to continue diagnosing yourself, a mechanics stethascope can be very useful to hear wear the steering linkage is binding. good luck!

What are some of the reasons I would hear a squeak/whine when turning the steering wheel on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?

The steering components need to be greased is my first option, but if this doesn't help, then your problem could be the power steering pump causing the sound.

1. Air could still be on your power steering system after you replaced your pump.
2. There could be another reason why your having a hard time turning your steering wheel, have your steering linkages, camber, alignment checked, so as to prevent breaking yor new pump again
thank you for choosing fixya!
